7:01 am
and good morning to all of you in the west. we're live with the news that break just a bit ago down in florida. no freedom yetet for casey anthony. >> not quite yet. the judge imposed the maximum sentence he could on her for the misdemeanor counts on which she was convicted. for leading police on a goose chase that was expensive to the state of florida. i think he gives this as a message to casey anthony. >> she will be in several more weeks. late july or early august. let's get right to the judge's decision. what we know about it. abc's ashleigh banfield is right outside the courtroom in orlando. good morning, ashleigh. >> reporter: good morning, george. the choppers overhead, are the sheriff's deputies. they've been circling for over an hour. the preparations for what went
7:02 am
on here were under way. but the truth of the matter, she is not getting out of jail today. not by a long shot. this judge threw the book at her, proverbally, giving her everything he could. four consecutive sentences for the charges against her. with some good time and some math, she could be getting out at the end of this month or maybe early august. have a listen to how it went down in the courtroom. >> as a result of those four, separate and distinct lies, law enforcement expended a great deal of time, energy and manpower looking for young caylee marie anthony. i will sentence you to one year in the orange county jail.
7:03 am
imposing a $1,000 fine on each cou cou count. all four counts to run consecutive to each other. giving you credit for the time that you have previously served. mr. baez, mr. mason, we're going to spend some time this morning figuring out her credit for time served. depending on preliminary figures. some time early august, maybe late july. >> reporter: this judge says he's going to reserve judgment for at least 60 days on that issue of what casey anthony might owe this community for the investigation into these crimes. in the meantime, you probably saw casey anthony, hair down,
7:04 am
for the first time in court. she was so animated when she came in. smiling, almost laughing. a different person than we saw at trial. but when the judge leveled this at her, george, her demeanor changed back to what we've been seeing all the way along. >> it sure did. we have a lot to talk about, ashleigh. let's bring in our team. dan abrams is coming in. yunji de nies who was inside the courtroom. and terry moran outside the courtroom. dan, i want to start with you. casey anthony's lawyers tried to argue for one misdemeanor conviction? >> they tried to say this was double-jeopardy. but the judge said she had developed the intent separately to lie four times. and that these were four, distinct and separate lies. and as a result, four distinct and separate crimes. >> and the state of florida
7:05 am
spent four months looking for this toddler and expended enormous resources. he was rather stern. >> let's be clear. this is the most he can possibly do. most often, when these cases happen, you don't see four one-year sentences to be served consecutively. it's absolutely right that the judge has thrown theook here at casey anthony for the particular crime she was convicted of. >> let me bring you in on this, as well. as you heard, elizabeth said the judge was stern. and clearly trying to send casey a message. >> no question about it, george. this is a judge with a law enforcement background. his father was actually the first african-american police officer on the orlando police force. he's been a prosecutor. and there is a sense that this community was traumatized by the crime. united in urgent concern for the search for caylee, when they
7:06 am
thought she was missing. fixated on the trial. and then, retraumatized by a verdict no one expected. there was a sense that he did want to have some justice done on these counts, that there was a punitive aspect to this. >> maybe a bit of a cooling-off period, as well, to let all of the energy outside that courtroom die down over the next several weeks. >> yes. that will happen. the energy is already dissipating rapidly. that's the nature of the american system. there are protesters outside the courthouse today. a few dozen. they are passionate. they are convicted. some pro-casey anthony protesters. one holding a sign, will you marry me, casey. >> we should add, while things are dying down somewhat, this judge was also warning the television stations to stop covering his comings and goings, because there was concern for him. and the anthonys have had 16
7:07 am
death threats already. >> obviously a heated issue. yunji de nies was inside the courtroom. we heard ashleigh talk about the difference in casey's demeanor, when she heard that the judge was going to throw the book at her, as ashleigh put it. what was the rest of the atmosphere like? >> it was fascinating to watch casey anthony's face. when she first walked in here, she was looking relaxed. she was smiling. even seemed to laugh at one point, when she was talking with the attorney. as soon as the judge handed down that sentence, her whole face changed. we saw that stern, stoneface, that we got used to seeing all these weeks. i was in the elevator, with some of the members of the audience that watched in that gallery. they said even though the judge gave her the maximum, they feel it was not enough. that was the case on the courthouse steps. i went out and talked to some of those people. we had quite a few protesters out there. some people out there with signs for caylee. people saying they were going to boycott casey anthony's books or
7:08 am
movies or anything she may profit from. they're calling that blood money. we saw people dress up in different outfits. one man with duct tape over his mouth and a heart-shaped sticker over that. obviously, a reference to the evidence we saw in this case. >> dan, just to underscore the judge's demeanor and intentions here. >> it depends on the circumstances. there was an argument to be made that when you convict on this kind of crime, even though it's four, distinct crimes, you can get a concurrent sentence, meaning a year. not four years. but this judge saying, no. it's not going to happen. and it's clear, he's already started doing the numbers. meaning, he comes in saying, early august, late july. in a case like this, where the world is watching, the judge is not going to make that kind of prediction unless he has a good
7:09 am
idea of where he thinks the numbers will end up. >> i want to get back to something that george is referring to. this cooling-off period, that maybe the judge is imposing on everybody. both the prosecutors in this case and the defense attorney, jose baez told barbara walters, they're concerned about casey anthony's future. there's been a schism in the anthony family. she turned out her entire family. her parents and her brother. she's had no contact with them. even though they were in the court today, they seemed to leave stoney-faced. >> the judge shouldn't base his decision on that. as a legal matter, the judge should not be evaluating the public policy implications of releasing her today, as opposed to releasing her later. what they're going to do now is they're going to go through and figure out technically, according to both the statutes and the corrections policies, in florida, how many days has she served? how much credit has she gotten?
7:10 am
how much credit does she deserve? that's why judge perry is saying, he wants the lawyers to come back to finish this discussion. to finish day-by-day, so they can come up with a definitive date that says, okay. based on all of the callations, here's the date she's going to be released. >> what about casey's parents? what was their demeanor in the courtroom? >> they were sitting in the courtroom. they looked stone-faced once again. it was hard to read their emotion. it's really hard to tell what they thought of it. >> okay. thank you all very much. >> ashleigh banfield, terry moran, dan abrams. now, george, you have other news. >> we're going to washington now, where lawmakers are meeting for a showdown over our ballooning debt. we're learning overnight president obama is pushing for
7:11 am
what he calls a grand bargain wilting to consider major changes in medicare and social security in return for republicans accepting major changes in the tax code. abc's jon karl joins us from washington. all talks secret up until now. what more do we know about what president obama and the speaker of the house have been discussing? >> reporter: we know they're talking about a big deal here, george. as you mentioned, this would mean that the president would go along with reductions in spending to social security and medicare. most likely cost of living increases going down. and in exchange, republicans would accept some increase in tax revenues as part of an overhaul of the tax code. as one top administration told me, we need to do something unthinkable on entitlements. they need to do something unthinkable on taxes. >> unthinkable may be the word. these talks have been going on between the president and speaker boehner. but there hasn't been a lot of discussion among the wider conferences in the house and the senate democrats and republicans. and i guess the big question coming out of today's meeting, when other leaders find out about it, is it something they can work with and is it something that will fly? >> reporter: a great question.
7:12 am
boehner and the president may be able to come to a deal. but look, george. virtually every republican in congress signed a pledge not to increase tax revenues. and democrats have long said that any cuts to social security or medicare are simply off the table and unthinkable, as well. so, they may come to agreement but getting it passed is going to be a steep climb. >> if it doesn't we hit the debt limit on august 2nd. >> reporter: exactly. >> jon karl, thanks very much. this is a very big meeting, the president with all of the leaders. and this is the first time, the secondary leaders, outside of the speaker, will hear the details of what the president will propose. it will be interesting to see what they walk out with. >> what's your prediction? do they get a deal? >> on the scale the president is talking about, it's difficult to see because the lines have been drawn so hard. a white house official pointed out to me earlier this morning, it's no easier to get a smaller deal than to get a bigger deal, which is president is pushing for. >> every side seems so dug in. let's get to a terrorist threat. bombs that are surgically implanted inside the body.
7:13 am
undetectable by pat-downs or body scanners at the airports.. abc's chief investigative correspondent, brian ross, has more on what led to this new security alert. >> reporter: beware of passengers coming to the u.s. who just had surgery. >> they may be on the move. >> reporter: medical experts say there is plenty of room in the stomach, to hide a packet of explosives the side of a grapefruit. >> the surgeon would open the abdominal cavity and implant the explosive device among the internal organs. >> reporter: right in there? u.s. officials say the plot is coming out of al qaeda in yemen. and the alert is for terrorists coming to mideast cities and coming to the u.s. scans could not notice a mass inside the body and determine it was an explosive. >> reporter: the detonation would come from a cell phone or
7:14 am
a syringe. >> we're sharing the information, with our foreign counterparts and also the u.s. carriers that fly overseas. >> reporter: the al qaeda bombmaker mastermind believed responsible, is a 28-year-old saudi by the name of ibrahim asiri. he is seen hugging his brother, who he then sent on a suicide mission, with a bomb implanted in his large intestines. the bomb detonated prematurely, killing the brother. but sparing the intended target, the head of counterterrorism in saudi arabia. for "good morning america," brian ross, abc news, new york. >> a truly frightening development in the war on terror. now, let's turn to josh elliott for other stories developing this morning. good morning, josh. >> good morning, elizabeth. and to you, george. we're going to begin with the deadly grizzly bear attack on hikers at yellowstone national park. the first fatal attack by a bear
7:15 am
inside the park in nearly a quarter-century. clayton sandell is there with new details and how park officials are now responding. good morning to you, clayton. >> reporter: good morning, josh. some of yellowstone's trails, campgrounds and roads where the grizzly attack took place, are closed at this hour. visitors a a being kept out for our own safety. it's a tragic reminder that one of the most wild landscapes is still wild. it was here about a mile and a half in, where a couple came face-to-face with a grizzly bear. the wife told officialsls she a her 57-year-old husband saw a bear with cubs at a distance. but they continued walking. when they saw the bear a second time, it was already charging them, attacking and killing the husband. >> other hikers on the trail heard the woman's cries for help. and they called 911, which summoned rangers. >> reporter: some 150 grizzlies ve in yell le stone.
7:16 am
more in the surrounding area. still, maulings are rare. >> this is the first time that there's been a bare-caused human fayele thety in yellowstone in nearly 50 years. >> reporter: there's been other bizarre attacks. >> i'm in cooke city right now. and we have e meone that has been attacked and bitten pretty badly by a bear. >> reporter: outside yellowstone last year, a 48-year-old man was mauled to death while sleeping in a tent. >> there was panic and moving around. that would motivate the prey instinct these animals do have. >> reporter: as for the latest grizzly attack, park officials say they will not try to capture or kill this mother bear. they believe she was simply trying to protect her cubs. that's a natural behavior. but un, unfortunately, that sometimes turns deadly. josh? >> clayton sandell in yellowstone. north of there, in montana, oil from a pipeline that ruptures from the yellowstone river has spread 80 miles go le

company about one hour to seal the pipeline about twice as long as it first reported. in southern california, one marine has been killed. five others injured, after a helicopter crash at camp pendleton wednesday. the cause of the crash remains under investigation. and finally, police in san francisco are hoping this surveillance video from outside a restaurant, leads them to of all things an art three of. that guy, walking by. holding a picture frame under his arm. newspaper appears to be covering what's in the frame. could be a 1965 drawing by picasso, "head of a woman," that he stole from a gallery just down the street. and it's worth a reported $200,000. police then believe that he hailed a cab shortly after being spotted by the camera. to sum up, the master plan of the art thief, george and
7:18 am
elizabeth, walk in broad daylight. take a painting off the wall. walk out and hope youou can haia cab in san francisco. >> and it's melting into the crowd. >> it worked. it works. >> that's the other thing. >> what is there's no cab there? >> you run. >> depending on public temperatures. >> thanks, josh. >> hey, sam. >> wouldn't they be fixed to the wall or something like that? unhook it? let's get to the monsoon flow in the southwest. this is what can kick up the dust storms in the desert. from l.a. toward eureka, you have a beautiful day in that area. and we will see more desert storms. here comes the cold front sweeping down from the northwest. it makes it to about eureka. along that front, there will be scattered storms in the northern

happen. we'll have more on this in a moment. plus, an exclusive interview with juror number three. she takes us inside the jury room and tells us what they were thinking. >> she says the prosecutors did not prove their case, even though she says she was sick to her stomach after the verdict because of what they knew they had gone through. we have that coming up. also, the latest on the royal road trip. get ready. will and kate are almost there. one more day. they're in canada one more day. in calgary, for the world's biggest rodeo. >> in a devastated town. lifting spirit there's. that's really great. also, we have disturbing videos that have gone wildly viral. these kids who are trying all these stunts, incredibly dangerous. all to be paid a few bucks. >> tough to watch. >> it's very tough to watch. and the trend isisising. we have a report on that coming up. let's get right to the judge's sentence and what that means for casey anthony. ashleigh banfield is right outside the courtroom in orlando, florida, with more on
7:32 am
this. good morning, ashleigh. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. this means casey a not walking free today. she is going to go back to the orange county jail and probably back to 23-hour-a-day lockdown, in protective custody. but it may only be a few weeks. once they do the math, they're working on it right now. the math, on just how many days she gets credit for. the good time she has served, as well. it has been a flurry of activity, as well. the sheriff's choppers have been overhead this whole time. we've had mounted police arriving here. protesters outside this courthouse. but i'll tell you something we're not going to see. the crazy activity outside the jail that we thought might actually happen today. that is not going to happen. at least for a few more weeks now. this story's not over, george. joining me now for an exclusive interview is one of the jurors, who helped determine casey's fate. that's jennifer ford.
7:33 am
you said you were sick to your stomach. is that because you knew she would go free? >> not knowing if you're setting someone free that murdered their child. we didn't know. it was hard to make the right decision, based on what actually happened. >> and you're not convinced she didn't? >> i'm not convinced she didn't. but i can't exclude the possibility of it being an accident. i can't find her guilty of a crime if a crime wasn't committee. it's just that not knowing. and not knowing made the right choice. we don't want to set someone free if they killed their beautiful daughter. >> not knowing and having that doubt, i wonder. does that make you frustrated with the prosecution? what did you need to hear or see from them that you didn't see?
7:34 am
>> i'm not sure what i needed exactly. they had strong circumstantial evidence. they needed something solid. something solid to say it absolutely was not an accident. tie it all together and not leave the dots for us to kind of -- or me, to kind of connect with speculation and accusations and guessing. like, we are instructed not to do that. for us to connect the dots with question marks, you know, didn't feel justifiable to do that. >> so, even though you had a lot of pieces, the search for chloroform, wrapped in duct tape. that wasn't enough? >> well, i have a lot of arguments against the chloroform to kind of -- i think there's so much doubt with that that i can't -- i have to take that out of the equation. it doesn't exist for me. >> crystal holloway alleged to
7:35 am
be george anthony's mistress. she said george told her this was an accident that spiraled out of control. and listening to you, it sounds like that's what you believe. >> i don't -- like i said, i don't believe one way or another. i don't have enough evidence either way. >> how much impact did that testimony have on you? >> not much. like most of the stuff, it can't be proven. so, it's just -- it's speculation. and it doesn't mean much. you can't put too much weight on it. it's just a guess. >> you sat through all that testimony, 33 days of testimony. you must have formed some opinion of what you think happened. >> well, as i explained before, it's easier to get to the conclusion that it was an accident than it is to get to the conclusion it had something to do with chloroform and duct tape. for me. if it was chloroform, george said casey left the house with caylee. so, were they in a public place when it happened? was caylee in her backseat? chloroformed and duct taped? or in public? put her in the trunk? i don't know how to make that
7:36 am
whole picture come together at all. >> do you think if the prosecutors were not seeking the death penalty, it might have affected how you deliberated about this case? >> absolutely. we were -- i think it was even mentioned a few times, if they charged her with other things, we probably could have convicted or got a guilty sentence. but not for death. not for first-degree. there's not enough to substantiate that. that's a very serious charge. >> i was shocked when russell huekler told elizabeth that based on the evidence he thought casey was a good mom. is that what you thought the evidence showed? >> nobody got up there and said, you know, casey acted like caylee was a burden to her and she never wanted to be a mother. nobody said that. they all said that casey seemed to have a good relationship with her daughter. and it seemed to be genuine. we had that on one hand. on the other hand, we did have the behavior that was questionable, at best.
7:37 am
after, you know, caylee died and she was out. and you know, doing whatever she did. so, it would have been helpful to have a witness that said, you know, either she neglected the child or, you know, the child was burdensome to her or something to that effect. but nobody said that. >> we only have a few seconds left. nancy grace yesterday called the jury kooky. how do you respond to that kind of criticism? >> i have no comment on nancy grace. it's not fit for television. >> so, you do have thoughts. you're just not going to say them? >> they're negative. and it's just -- there's no point in it. i think a lot of things she says just fuel the fire. and they're based on nothing. and i, obviously, am against making decisions based on just speculation and opinions. >> okay. well, jennifer ford, thanks very much for joining us. >> thank you for your time. we're going to go to jaycee duga dugard, who was abducted at 11 years old. and held captive for 18 years.
7:38 am
jaycee has written a new book. and it's a big, big interview. you say that she is one of the most remarkable figures you met. >> you cannot not be affected by it. but you can transfer it into a new way to look another life every day. that's what she does. ? is she naive? >> no. and she looks with unflinching clarity of what was done to her. the handcuffs. the sexual abuse. she talks about it. she tells about it. but at the end of the day she says he's not going to own me. i will stare it down. and i will not be afraid. >> one of the things that is so remarkable about this story aside from the 18 years of captivity is that she gave birth
7:39 am
to 2 babies in that backyard. giving birth is a scary thing. did she do this by herself? >> again, she didn't -- she had no medicare care. she had the garridos who were holding her hostage there. >> but did they help her? >> well, they helped her. but they studied videos to learn how to do it. and as she tells it and you'll see the night on "world news," she'll speak for the first time, you will hear emotionally her reaction. this girl who barely knows what it is to have a baby and her reaction when she sees this child that she's brought into this world. it's so moving. >> during that 18 years, did she ever try to escape? >> you know, it's such a complex -- always a complex prison without bars sometimes of the mind. and here is the most inconceivable thing, elizabeth. and chris cuomo has launched an investigation that is incredible. 60 times -- >> 6-0. not 1-6. >> 60 times officers of the law came to the door. came to the house. she was there in the backyard. they didn't look or they didn't find her. >> how is that possible?
7:40 am
>> that's what we were asking. and we're going to tell you all about it on our special on sunday night. >> so, bottom line, when you talk to her and her mother. i mean, because this is a reunion between mother and daughter. the other half of the story, of course, is the mother whose daughter went missing for 18 years. >> that's right. >> has that been a bumpy road? that -- >> well -- >> remeeting of sorts. >> for both of them to keep up hope for 18 years. imagine that. bumpy, no. it was love and more love and joy. and her mother struggling. but not about jaycee or her daughters. just love. >> wow. all right, diane. thank you very much. you can see all of diane's riveting and exclusive interview with jaycee dugard this sunday night at 9:00, 8:00 central. and now, it's time for the weather. and sam champion. hey, sam. >> good morning, elizabeth. we might be able to stretch our nice, dry run of weather in seattle for a couple more days. but there are some scattered showers expected around the area during today. but they might not get to seattle proper.

8:25 am
to make sure it's still on the healthy side of the scale. 1 government agency recommends 2 1/2 hours of moderate aerobic activity a week for adults. putting brooke, 12-times above the recommendation. and experts warn that extreme exercise can lead to anorexia athletica. how do you know this isn't an addiction for you? >> i don't have an addictive personality. i've never been addicted to anything in my life. i think when it becomes an obsession, it's unhealthy. >> reporter: but i must say, after spending some time with brooke on the hike, i felt like i walked into one of those exercise infomercials. hiking, running, various calisthenics and training techniques. by the end of the day, i was wiped. i'm feeling tired. i'm feeling good. i feel like i got a workout. but not overboard. i feel like i can still -- is brooke taking it too far? she's participating in fitness competitions. but says she has it under
8:26 am
control. >> i listen to my body. if i need a rest, if i need a day off, if i need to sleep in, you know, few extra hours in the morning, i'll listen to my body and do that. >> look, like many things in life, it's all about balance. if you're working out this much because you really enjoy it, but you can take it or leave it, that's great. if you honestly check with yourself and there is a need to workout, to fill some kind of inner void, you might want to talk to somebody. >> i think you're right. cameron, thanks so much. time for you to weigh in. which trend do you think is more troubling? extreme exercise? or extreme dieting? vote now using the "gma" app on your iphone or android phone. or of course, you can head to our website. we'd love to hear from you. coming up, what if you could only eat less than ten foods to survive? we'll introduce you to the little boy whose life depends on his diet.

>> good time, with flat stephanie. also coming up, we'll visit a family who has a little boy who has a rare and mysterious illness where he can only eat four foods to survive. this is a life-and-death issue. what causes this disease? and how is this family coping with it? we'll find out in just a few minutes. is he the cutest thing? oh, my goodness. you're going to talk about something that's all electronic owners struggle with. >> i had no idea it would be such controversy among us. we all had our opinions on this. what you do when your appliances go on the fritz? repair? replace? >> yes. >> so casual. so, what happens when good appliances go bad? we could save you thousands. so, stay tuned for that. >> you know, in the south we used to line our driveways with old tires. you know, we thought it was just a nice to turn them into planters. maybe we turn them into planters. >> we feed to talk about decorating. we need to talk about it. >> apparently. i will say. sam, it would be a great day to line the driveway with some appliances, no? let's get to the boards. just a spur-of-the-moment idea
8:32 am
that didn't fly. to the boards, elizabeth is like, sam, stop. here's what's going on this morning. one or two things we want you to know about. twitter pictures, this is amazing, by the way. look at the top two. remember yesterday's haboob, the word heard round the nation of that giant dust storm. look at the two top pictures from twitter. these are folks who were right there in the event and sent us that in. we love when you do that to pictures that are going on in weather around the nation. and here's the hot spots. one or two places you know all the way through the soh. but even look in the north. look at billings at 90 degrees. we can tell you that new orleans is hot and hazy and humid and will stay that way. and this five-day forecast will show you one of the places that just isn't going to be in the heat. seattle looking at 70s and 60s, as well, as several systems line up to move across the northwest and bring that rain problem into the midwest again, with what will be some heavy rain falling with that system.
8:33 am
all of that weather brought to you by at&t. elizabeth vargas, juju chang. >> juju chang. [ cheers ] a recent study shows that nearly 6 million children in this country suffer from food allergies. they can be life-threatening. the reactions vary and vary widely. you have the story of one little boy in a family that can only eat four foods? >> oh, it is just so sad. and i think about this, elizabeth. you and i have five sons between us. >> exactct. >> reporter: what does every mother love? to feed their child? imagine if there are only five foods that you could feed that child and you have to watch vigilantly everything that child is eating because, literally, one wrong bite could land him in the e.r. what color is that one? >> that's a blue one.
8:34 am
>> reporter: oh, that's right. >> that's a school bus. >> reporter: landon schultz loves to indulge in imaginary play. with his toy trucks. oh. >> that's parsley. >> reporter: and hisislay kitchen. >> thank you. >> reporter: but the food landon pretends to eat may be the closest thing he gets to eating real food because landon's body reacts so violently to certain foods there are literally only four things on the planet landon can eat safely. that's landon's corner. >> yes, it is. >> reporter: so, what does landon have for breakfast? >> he has a six-ounce bottle and has his yogurt. and then we do strawberries and blueberries or grapes. that's pretty much what he eats in the morning, afternooooand evening. add some blueberries. >> reporter: that's it. and avocado. those four foods. he used to eat a much wider menu but it kept leading to horrible bouts of what looked like a bad stomach bug. so bad, in fact, he'd wind up in the hospital with dehydration.
8:35 am
>> there's things he'd never seen before come out of a child. and he starts having the diarrhea. sometimes he'll start vomiting, as well. then, he'll become lifeless and go into shock. >> reporter: in fact, landon has been hospitalized three times with these mysterious symptoms. he saw nine different doctors until one finally diagnosed him with fpies, foododrotein induced enterocolitis syndrome. it's a food allergy. but it doesn't produce hives or it doesn't respond to antihistamines. landon is a rare case of a rare disease. >> some children had the same severe reaction. but they don't have nearly as many foods. he did have a trial with sweet potatoes. and and ended up in the hospital for five days. >> reporter: since then, landon has had 27 different foods taken
8:36 am
off his plate. from broccoli to beef, barley, even olive oil. what does he ask for that he can't have? >> chicken, sweet potatoes. apples. >> reporter: the extreme restrictions stretch the limits of the culinary creativity. there's a lot of chopping, blending and shaving. these icy concoctions help dress up landon's four allowable foods into different meals each day. >> ice is an extra special treat for landon. we have a snow cone machine. >> want to press the button. >> he can't have the flavoring in the traditional snow cone. you're making a mess. >> we puree strawberries, blueberries. >> that's mine. >> reporter: but that's about it. which is why playing with food or even shopping for it is an act of hope. >> is landon allowed to eat those? >> no. >> what about oranges? do you eat oranges? >> no. >> what about lemons? >> no. >> reporter: wait. what's here? >> strawberries.
8:37 am
>> eat some blueberries. yummy. big thing for us is to make sure that he's not afraid of food. so, if we can set some limits that are safe but also introduce foods to him or expose him to foods, then maybe one day if he is going to get better we won't have a really hard time getting him to eat. >> we'll have them introduce foods after a period of avoiding the food. for kids like landon, where they have terrible reactions, we often may have them wait three years, four years. >> reporter: there is no cure. but maybe, just maybe, landon might outgrow this disease. but until then he gets hypoallergenic yogurt and waits. such a small child but a huge personality. we just spoke to his parents last night. he's gone from four foods to five. he added salmon. and it takes 2 weeks, 2 1/2 weeks to give him a tablespoon a day to make sure he doesn't reject it.
8:38 am
so, they're celebrating. if he's lucky they'll be able to add coconuts to his diet. which would be a sixth food. >> how do they decide which food to add? >> they add them slightly more hypoallergenic ones. but they're all celebrating by going to the first fpies walk-a-thon in chicago. they're thrilled. >> what an adorable boy. i'll never complain about my youngest an his eating habits. thanks so much, juju. do you fix it or toss it? what do you do when your electronic appliances go on the fritz? all the answers in just a moment. -dad, why e you getting that? -that's my cereal. is there a prize in there? oh, there's prize, all right. is it a robot? no. is it a jet plane? nope. is it a dinosaur? [ laughs ] [ male announcer ] inside every box of heart healthy cheerios are the great tasting little o's made from carefully selected oats that can help lower cholesterol. stickers? uh-uh. a perhero? ♪ kinda.

refrigerators, dishwashers, washers and dryers. they're all big-ticket itemsms that can be so expensive to replace. so, when one of them breaks down, how do you know if you should replace it? or just repair it? that's the cover story in this month's "consumer reports." and "gma" tech contributor, becky worley, joins us now with some answers that can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. becky? >> yes, thousands of dollars. we make it sound like a game show, in fact. you know, it's a dilemma. when an appliance acts up, do you maybe eke out a few more years with a repair? or do you worry that it becomes a money pit and just replace it? so, we did just that. we turned that question into a game show. ♪ around the house there are jackpots to be won and lost when you're deciding the fate of faulty appliances.
8:42 am
do you keep it and hope for the best from a $100 repair? or do you buy a new one to stop the service visits? so, to help you decide, we'll play a simple game called, "repair or replace?" first up, a 12-year-old refrigerate that won't make ice. and it has a hard time keeping the fridge cold during the summer months. >> repair or replace? >> it's going totoe pretty expensive to repair. and you can probably get a new one for similar costs or less. >> reporter: so, for the 12-year-old model with multiple problems, replace. one upside to shelling out $800 or more for a new one. >> newer more efficient rereigerators, we'll say over the one you currently have that's ten or years older, could save you as much as $100 a year on your electrical costs. ♪ >> reporter: this is especially true of dishwashers.
8:43 am
newer models, like this one, can save you over $100 in energy costs over the lifetime of the appliance. they also use less water. and added bonus, they're a lot quieter. next, an issue in my house. my 8-year-old dryer has gotten really loud. >> repair or replace? >> when we did our survey, we found that the typical dryer cost about $140 to repair, on median. so, it's not that expensive a repair, because a new dryer is usually going to cost you, you know, anywhere from $400 to $1,000. >> reporter: hopefully she's right. a repairman comes to the house and finds a simple fix. ooh. quiet. >> sounds good. >> reporter: i think you just saved me about a thousand bucks. thank you. finally, computers. they break a lot. does yours have any of these symptoms? clicking, whining noises, takes
8:44 am
forever to open files, randomly reboots. >> repair or replace? >> computers and all electronics usually have a shorter shelf life. >> reporter: in their survey, "consumer reports" found that 30% of all computers need a fix by year four. >> if it's three or four years old, you might want to replace it just because the replacement is going to give you more memory. it's going to do more for you. and the cost of f e new computers are coming down. >> reporter: still, average replacement costs are about $800 for a new laptop. now, one trick to make computers last longer, stay away from viruses. there's good, free anti-virus software. and think twice before clicking suspicious links. thanks for playing. and good luck with your own game of -- >> repair or replace? >> now, here's the general rule. if the repair costs more than 50% of what you would end up
8:45 am
paying to just replace it and buy a new one, well, then, lara, it's time to pony up and head to the store. >> all right. good rule. you're quite a good host, by the way. i was really surprised to read that fridges with icemakers are twice as likely to break. so, stay away from those? >> yeah, there are certain categories of things that break a lot more. and the older icemakers were really complicated. and then there are the categories of things that are easy replacements, easy repairs versus bad. here are the easy ones generally digital cameras, electric cooktops then dryers. lucky me. i saved a thousand bucks on that. but then, on the flipside, there's the bad ones that you just end pouring money into and you should probably should just replace. home theater systems, sometimes really complicated repairs, gas cooktops and then a built-in oven. so, that's kind of a rule of thumb and a guide. >> good to know. becky worley, we thank you. >> thank you. coming up on "good morning america," big deals on pet products, only for you, our "gma" viewers.
